Swanky Burgundy and Red-Toned Wedding at Venue at Oakdale in North Little Rock, Arkansas
Corey and Rhianna’s wedding at Venue at Oakdale was a gorgeous day exquisitely planned by Washington, D.C. wedding planner, Andrew Roby with Andrew Roby Events. The couple met at the gym, but eventually became more deeply connected through Instagram direct messaging. The rest is history! Because guests love cake, but hate waiting for cake, the couple opted for a faux cake with sheet cake in the kitchen to actually serve from. That way, guests can be served immediately after cake-cutting photos commence. Between the beautiful burgundy and red tones, the delicious meal and all the wonderful people involved and in attendance at this wedding, we can definitely say this was an event to remember.
